One of the trickiest things to get right when it comes to spring dressing is footwear. By now, many of us are desperate to get out of our winter boots and tights, but it's certainly not sandal weather yet. If you're looking for a summery shoe style, slingbacks are the perfect solution—and they just so happen to be notching up more retail space than anything else right now. Timely? You bet.
Slingbacks, we assure you, will look amazing with skirts and dresses, but thanks to the closed toe, you can go a little longer without an emergency pedicure. As ever, Mango, & Other Stories and Zara are stepping up with amazing styles for under £70—our favourites we've seen are Mango's red leather pair with delicate ties wrapping around the ankle, a style we know has already been purchased and worn within the Who What Wear UK office.
